De kalender van het ONK enduro in 2015 is bekend. Het kampioenschap telt 10 wedstrijden, waarvan die in Amersfoort onder voorbehoud van nog te maken afspraken met Defensie op de kalender staat.
Aan het enthousiasme van de betrokken club MSV Salz zal het in ieder geval niet liggen. Afgelopen seizoen organiseerden zij een enduro die, voor het eerst, grotendeels over Defensieterrein werd verreden. Totdat er afspraken zijn gemaakt met Defensie, zal de wedstrijd als ‘Nog niet bekend’ op de kalender staan.
Verder is de datum van de ONK enduro in Bergeijk nog niet definitief. Met de organisator wordt nog bekeken of hun wedstrijd op zaterdag 10 dan wel zondag 11 oktober verreden zal worden.
Naast de openingsrit zal MAC Veldhoven ook de afsluitende Kampioensrit van 2015 organiseren. Deze vindt plaats op 12 en 13 december 2015

21 februari: Eindhoven

Aan de offroadkalender wordt nog hard gewerkt. Zodra ook de offroadevenementen definitief zij ingevuld, zal de totaalkalender van de KNMV enduro en offroad als pdf-bestand beschikbaar zijn.
ALFREDO GOMEZ SECURES FIFTH OVERALL FOR BEL-RAY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING
At the end of a drama filled night Husqvarna’s Alfredo Gomez finished fifth overall at the first round of the 2015 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship. Faced with a demanding track and what many considered to be the strongest ever line-up of indoor enduro specialists, Gomez secured consistent results despite making mistakes in all races.
The night’s opening Prestige class final saw Alfredo claim the holeshot and remain out front for three laps. Looking extremely comfortable around the unpredictable course, in trying to pass a stranded, lapped rider Alfredo was knocked off the track and off his bike. Frustratingly, in an instant he went from race leader to third with further mistakes seeing him eventually place fifth.
In the second and third finals Alfredo saw small mistakes prevent him from placing higher than the sixth and fifth place results he secured. Showing good speed, and ensuring a strong start to his 2015 SuperEnduro campaign, Alfredo sits just five points behind third placed Cody Webb in the SuperEnduro World Championship standings.

Bel-Ray Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis ended his participation in the 2014 Roof of Africa in Lesotho with a third place result following three tough days of competition.
Renowned for being one of the toughest and most unpredictable extreme enduro races on the calendar, the 2014 Roof of Africa lived up to it’s fearsome reputation. Long, long days of racing and some seriously hard terrain ensured a high rate of attrition for the competitors involved.
Entering the event as defending champion, Jarvis had his sights set on making it a repeat victory. Feeling confident following his recent win at the GetzenRodeo in Germany and Wildwood Extreme in Australia, Jarvis initially got day one off to a good start.
Quickly catching early pace setter Wade Young, Jarvis fought his way into the lead and opened up a small but comfortable advantage. On a tricky water crossing, the Husqvarna rider ran into problems when he badly drowned his bike. Loosing a lot of time in getting it going again, he ended day one in ninth.

Wow! What a night. If ever there was proof that SuperEnduro delivers some of the most exciting off-road motorcycle racing there is, the first round of the 2015 Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro series was it. With home favourite Taddy BLAZUSIAK riding at his absolute best, accidents and incidents aplenty filled each of the three Prestige class finals. BLAZUSIAK proved unbeatable and secured three wins to take the night’s overall win ahead of David KNIGHT and Cody WEBB. In the Junior class the enthusiastic Polish crowd witnessed the emergence of a definite star of the future – US racer Ty TREMAINE. Dejected and downbeat 12 months ago having surprising failed to win the opening round of the 2014 SuperEnduro series, Taddy BLAZUSIAK showed everyone who was boss tonight inside the Ergo Arena. Clearly motivated to start the championship in the right way, the five-time SuperEnduro title winner’s night ended perfectly but started in absolutely the worst way.
Crashing with team-mate Jonny WALKER in the first corner of the opening final, Taddy put on what will be remembered as one of the all-time best come-from-behind rides to claim an amazing win. Spain’s Alfredo GOMEZ made the most of the chaos in the first turn, leading during the early laps before being passed by Cody WEBB. WEBB, who moved passed GOMEZ when the Husqvarna rider tangled with a lapped rider, looked like he had the race won. But in losing drive as he took off over a log jump he crashed heavily, throwing away his lead. By this time Taddy had worked his way in front of David KNIGHT for second and inherited the lead with just one lap to go. Claiming a well-deserved win Taddy finished ahead of KNIGHT and a disappointed WEBB.
